July is here! Please help make our book of the month program awesome! Won't it be amazing to have a hundred users on this website reading the same book at around the same time and then discussing it right here on this website?!.
AlysonofBathe wrote:The characters in Pride and Prejudicefelt either bland (Jane the oh-so useless) or idiotic (Mrs. Bennet, Lydia, most of the Bennet clan actually), and while idiotic can be fun, it just doesn't carry the book well, at least not for me. And I appreciate Lizzy's wit, but not enough to cancel out the rest of the characters.
I read Jane Eyre years ago in high school, but I honestly can't recall the details much; I'll get back to it eventually.

Redlegs wrote:I must say I really enjoyed Pride and Prejudice. It was full of relatively gentle social commentary and humour. Some of the characters were caricatures to a certain extent, but they were well integrtaed into the structure of the novel. I was sufficiently impressed to name one of my cats Mr Darcy.

The book is written in a very interesting language and has a wonderful plot, perfect for anyone who is interested in learning more about the ways of humainty or just wants to read a pleasant story, with a happy ending.
